Product Details

Seymour Duncan Custom Staggered SSL-5 Single-Coil 7-String Electric Guitar Pickup

The Seymour Duncan Custom Staggered SSL-5 7-string pickup provides a distinct vintage tone with greater sustain and full sounding harmonics. The pickup cuts through the mix but also cleans up nicely when you back off the volume.

The Custom Staggered SSL-5 pickup's 6-string counterpart has been championed by countless artists over its long history for its strong, overwound Strat tone. The Seymour Duncan Custom Staggered pickup recently appeared on Fender's David Gilmour Signature Series Strat.

Pair the Seymour Duncan Custom Staggered SSL-5 7-string pickup with a high-output bridge pickup like Seymour Duncan's SH-10 Full Shred 7-string, and a moderate output neck pickup like Seymour Duncan's SH-2n Jazz 7-string for a great tone when playing Texas blues rock, classic rock, and heavy rock. Though it looks like Seymour Duncan's SSL-1 and has that distinct vintage tone, the SSL-5's overwound coil yield higher output, more sustain, and greater harmonics.

Complete setup (additional pickups sold separately):
Calibrated set available from Seymour Duncan with RW/RP (reverse wound, reverse polarity) middle pickup. Many players use Seymour Duncan's SSL-5 in the bridge position with vintage output pickups, like Seymour Duncan's SSL-1's in the neck and middle for tonal versatility.

Guitars:
For heavier and brighter-toned instruments with ash or alder bodies. Works well with maple or rosewood fingerboards.

Players:
Nick Lashley / Alanis Morissette & Mick Jagger / Rickey Medlocke & Mike Estes / Lynyrd Skynyrd, Yogi / Wallflowers

Made in the USA:
These pickups come with a black cover; are produced at the Seymour Duncan factory in Santa Barbara, California; and made their debut at the January 2010 NAMM show in Los Angeles.
